It was supposed to be a pit stop along the drive from Sorrento to Siena. Turn out that this is the most enchanting place on our whole Italian itinerary.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the great hospitality shown by the owners, although we only managed to communicate mostly in 'sign language'. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we were made to feel very welcome though we stayed for only one night.
The whole place was very clean and very well maintained. The breakfast was homemade by the charming old lady owner. We would have stayed longer if not for the onward hotel booking we had . . .
The nearby town provides ample eating places. We had a great dinner in one of the family run restaurant there, can't remember the name of the place - great pasta, wonderful dessert.
